Tammuz 21, 5769 Second day Yom Shaynee

Blessed be the LORD our God, Creator and King of the universe.

In Second Samuel 24:17....David says to ADONAI..."I have sinned, I have done wrong".
ADONAI, thru Gad tells him, "Go set up an altar to ADONAI on the threshing floor of Aravnah the Y'vusi. So David did as ADONAI had ordered. Aravnah sees the king coming and lays prostrate before him, asking why the king has come. David tells him he has come to buy the thrashing floor to build an altar to ADONAI. Aravnah offers it to David for nothing, as a gift...but David insists on buying it....."I refuse to offer ADONAI my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing".

What do I have to give You, LORD? What do I have?

"You are to love ADONAI your God with all your heart, all your being and all your rescources."

How many times have you beaten yourself up because you have felt you didn't have anything to offer the LORD? I think we all feel this way. I look at myself and I wonder why He even puts up with me.

What am I willing to sacrifice to You? What do You truly want from me?

And the LORD says to me..."You are not as you should be. You are not as I want you to be. You cannot do as I desire and do as you want. Don't you see your afflictions are coming from the place within you that has not come under My authority? Wait upon Me. Do not run with your mouth open and your tongue wagging."

'ADONAI is good, and He is fair; this is why He teaches sinners the way to live, leads the humble to do what is right and teaches the humble to live His way. All ADONAI'S paths are grace and truth to those who keep His covenant and instructions.'

Examine me, ADONAI, test me, search my mind and heart, for Your grace is there before my eyes, and I live my life in Your truth. Teach me Your Way, O ADONAI, lead me in a straight path. You are my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in You. Your anger lasts only a moment but your favor lasts a lifetime.

'Obedience brings favor. Favor brings blessing. Fasting and prayer brings deliverance. Forgiveness brings power.'

Yes, this is what You have said to me. But, my strength fails me because of my affliction and my bones grow weak. I cry out to You!

'The eyes of ADONAI watch over the righteous and his ears are open to their cry.
The righteous cry out and ADONAI hears. He saves you from all your troubles. ADONAI is near those wih broken hearts; He saves those whose spirit is crushed. The rightwous person suffers many evils but ADONAI rescues him out of them all.
Adonai looks out from heaven; He sees every human being; from the place where He lives He watches everyone living on earth. He Who fashioned the hearts of them all and understands all they do.'

Do you want a long life to see good things? If you do then keep your tongue from evil and your lips from deceiving talk; turn from evil, do good; seek peace, go after it!

Through Yeshua we have received redemption..our salvation is sure...but He said..."Take My is easy....the burden is light."

What was He talking about? The Torah. The Torah is spoken of as a yoke but it is not a burden. It is not chained around your neck pulling you is a gift..a manual from God. It cantains all His instruction for our lives.

We are afflicted and burdened by life's everyday trials and tribulations. Some have more to bear than others and yes, some days are just worse than others but Who do we trust? We are to trust in our Elohim...our ADONAI.

I can keep trying to find the right sacrifice to set before my KIng but what does He say? What does he truly want?....Does ADONAI delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of ADONAI? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed orders is better than the fat of rams.”
1 Samuel 15:22

The mouth of the righteous man utters wisdom and his tongue speaks what is just.
The Torah of his God is in his heart; his footsteps will not falter

May you be blessed today. As always I only want what is best for you. Psalm 119 is all about Torah and how important it is to all of us who believe in ADONAI. If Yeshua is your Savior, if you call upon His name then you MUST start taking His Torah seriously. God has not changed! He is the same today, yesterday and forever. Do you want to understand how our Father wants us all to live? His Torah...which is the Word....and the Word became flesh.....Torah is Yeshua!

With love to you in and through Yeshua...His servant, gloria

Psalms Chapter 119

קא מִכָּל-אֹרַח רָע, כָּלִאתִי רַגְלָי-- לְמַעַן, אֶשְׁמֹר דְּבָרֶךָ. 101 I have refrained my feet from every evil way, in order that I might observe Thy word.

קב מִמִּשְׁפָּטֶיךָ לֹא-סָרְתִּי: כִּי-אַתָּה, הוֹרֵתָנִי. 102 I have not turned aside from Thine ordinances; for Thou hast instructed me.

קג מַה-נִּמְלְצוּ לְחִכִּי, אִמְרָתֶךָ-- מִדְּבַשׁ לְפִי. 103 How sweet are Thy words unto my palate! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!

קד מִפִּקּוּדֶיךָ אֶתְבּוֹנָן; עַל כֵּן, שָׂנֵאתִי כָּל-אֹרַח שָׁקֶר. 104 From Thy precepts I get understanding; therefore I hate every false way. {P}
קה נֵר-לְרַגְלִי דְבָרֶךָ; וְאוֹר, לִנְתִיבָתִי. 105 NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

קו נִשְׁבַּעְתִּי וָאֲקַיֵּמָה-- לִשְׁמֹר, מִשְׁפְּטֵי צִדְקֶךָ. 106 I have sworn, and have confirmed it, to observe Thy righteous ordinances.

קז נַעֲנֵיתִי עַד-מְאֹד; יְהוָה, חַיֵּנִי כִדְבָרֶךָ. 107 I am afflicted very much; quicken me, O LORD, according unto Thy word.

קח נִדְבוֹת פִּי, רְצֵה-נָא יְהוָה; וּמִשְׁפָּטֶיךָ לַמְּדֵנִי. 108 Accept, I beseech Thee, the freewill-offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me Thine ordinances.

קט נַפְשִׁי בְכַפִּי תָמִיד; וְתוֹרָתְךָ, לֹא שָׁכָחְתִּי. 109 My soul is continually in my hand; yet have I not forgotten Thy law.

קי נָתְנוּ רְשָׁעִים פַּח לִי; וּמִפִּקּוּדֶיךָ, לֹא תָעִיתִי. 110 The wicked have laid a snare for me; yet went I not astray from Thy precepts.
